Grades PreK-5 ⋅ Climb aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and discover what it takes to be an astronaut! Students will explore the engineering ingenuity used to design the ISS and understand just what astronauts need to live and work in space.
> Subjects: Engineering design, Properties on Earth and in Space, Rocketry and space travel, Motion of Fluids (Air)
In our Space Stations activity, students participate in a number of hands-on activities to explore different aspects of living and working in space. Smaller groups engage in the stations together, while larger groups will be split to rotate through stations. Stations explore a range of space-related topics, such as food in space, the design of the ISS Canada Arm, how space suits work, and more. iSPACE staff will help you select stations based on age and space.
Can be paired with the Living and Working in Space Assembly Presentation.
